I crave for some Scotch & Soda

It has always been a struggle for me to shop in Cebu when it comes to finding eccentric patterns on apparel. And from a recent business meeting,  a new stylish business partner (Something for you, guys to look forward in the coming post),  told me to check Scotch & Soda because he distributes it in his Cebu store.

And I DIED!

These are some of my personal favorites from their collection. Actually, I love the whole collection.

I love the choice of color combinations to the patterns and print. Just perfect and now, I’m excited to come back to Cebu after this sudden Manila trip (another AMAZING post to share in the future).

I must say, this year is starting very good!

Thank you, Lord for the blessings! In Your Glory!

Into the City of Pine

IMG_0364IMG_0361IMG_0338IMG_0339IMG_0341IMG_0344IMG_0347IMG_0349IMG_0360IMG_0362IMG_0365IMG_0366IMG_0368

As we return back to Manila, we had one last stop which was Baguio City.

I was really looking forward to this stop not only for the cool weather but one of my top purchases that I would make was going to be in this city from Good Shepherd’s home made products which are so immaculate to Sagada Handwoven Bag that I have been eyeing for awhile.

Our stay was very short but we were able to pass by a very quaint and homey restaurant which was Cafe by the Ruins. They had one of the best Cinnamon Rolls I have ever tasted. The freshness of the baked roll to the crunchiness of the nuts with every bite was totally sinful. The Melon Refresher (drink) was something that you can easily make anywhere but nevertheless, it help soothe my throat. And the Champorado, YUM! I never thought you were suppose to eat it with Danggit (Dried Fish). The saltiness and sweetness was a delectable contrast.

We then hurriedly rush to Mind’s View Park to do some necessary shopping and of course, to get some fresh Strawberry Taho (Tofu Pudding with Fresh Strawberries and syrup).

I brought a lot Good Shepherd’s Products which I never thought would be that heavy but they were worth it for their taste and charity to bring youth to school.

By the end of the day, I found the bag that I’m looking for but I’m eyeing to get the rattan woven bag in the future. I have this feeling that I can revive it. Something to look forward to in my next return to the city of Pine.

Yours Truly,
